Delivery Style Pizza Dough Recipe
Delivery style pizza dough recipe was a strangely traditionalist style of pizza for a long time. It sold only one kind of crust, called the regular pizza, and only in two sizes. The pizza dough was shaped by tossing and pulling, and they offered no side orders. Delivery pizza has expanded and diversified a lot since then, with pan pizzas and other types being added. However, original delivery pizza crust is still the same.
This delivery pizza dough recipe aims to capture that unique chewiness that we all recognize and love. Use an electric mixer to speed things up, or just combine by hand for a good workout. Like many other pizza doughs, this one can be refrigerated and frozen for use later. Try it, and experience the great taste of delivery pizza dough in your kitchen.
If you are tired of all the new pizza trends like stuffed crusts or using different kinds of flour or adding other things to the crust to enhance the flavor, this is a great recipe to fall back on. If you do not want a deep-dough or pan pizza, and you are not in the mood for a really thin and crispy one either, consider making this delivery style dough, because you know exactly what you are going to be getting.
If you have a favorite kind of pizza you used to order, try to recreate it yourself. You already know you are going to be getting the perfect crust, but then you can also use your favorite kind of pizza sauce, along with all the toppings you like. Your homemade pizza will not only be cheaper to make but it will offer a fresher, better flavor, and you are in total control of the toppings, shape and size of your pizza as well.
- 5 cups all purpose or bread flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon instant yeast
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 ¾ cups warm water
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, stirring vigorously. Set aside to rest five minutes, and then stir again for three to five minutes.
- Add additional water or flour to achieve a smooth, sticky dough.
- Divide into four pieces and place each one into an oiled freezer bag.
- At this point, dough can be refrigerated or frozen.
- Allow to rise at room temperature and then punch down.
- Stretch each piece onto a ten inch pizza pan and allow to rest a few minutes.
- Top as usual, and then bake at 450 degrees F until crust is crisp and cheese has melted.
These days there are so many pizza crusts to choose from, but go back just a few decades and there are only a couple to choose from, namely thin crust and thick crust. Go to Italy and most pizzas are made with a thin, chewy crust, or head to Chicago to see what a pan pizza is all about or New York for pizza crust so chewy and strong you can even fold the slices. If your heart is set on the type of pizza crust you get with a delivery pizza though, make this recipe and you will not be disappointed with the results because it will bring back so many wonderful memories.
